The entrance showcases ancient old-growth trees, witnesses to the retreat of the Ice Age.

Venturing further into the 30-mile waterway, the lingering icy embrace becomes palpable. The Twin Sawyer Glaciers majestically flow, shedding colossal chunks of water frozen for decades. Tracy Arm’s wilderness, sheltered by the Tongass National Forest, surpasses nearby Glacier Bay in splendor.

In this haven, encounters with wildlife are commonplace—bears, whales, mountain goats, and chubby baby seals resting on ice floes grace the untouched corners of this wilderness.

Founded in 1880 as Harrisburg, later renamed to honor prospector Joe Juneau, this city teems with outdoor adventures. Explore on foot along the Perseverance Trail, marvel at Mendenhall Glacier, embark on a whale-watching boat, or soar above the Juneau Icefield in a helicopter.
